Electricity provider to offer Wing payments

Electricite du Cambodge (EdC) on Monday announced it will offer customers in Sihanoukville, Battambang and Siem Reap the option to pay their bills via mobile payment provider Wing.

EdC and Wing officials signed an agreement on July 1 at the Cambodiana Hotel in Phnom Penh authorising the partnership, which is yet to have an official roll out date.

The electricity provider already offers Wing payments to customers in Kandal province and Phnom Penh.

EdC director Keo Ratanak said that the agreement will cut wait times for customer trying to pay their bills at the post office.

“[Wing] are easier to pay electricity bills with as they [bill payers] don’t need to stand in line under the sunshine or wait for long,” Ratanak said.

Wing currently has 124 outlets in Battambang, 108 in Siem Reap and 40 in Sihanoukville. Service charges for bill payments depend on the size of the bill, according to Wing CEO Anthony Perkins, but typically cost between $0.25 and $0.50.

“Consumers will have convenience of paying their bill either through our Wing Cash Xpress network where our agents are most likely much closer to their home or business," Perkins said.

Perkins said EdC’s new agreement could be finalised and operational by next month.

Among its other public sector clients, Wing also provides bill payment services for Phnom Penh Water Supply customers and payroll services for Cambodian government employees.
